Little Leaguer crushes home run while his mom is being interviewed about her cancer battle on TV

She was talking about her battle with cancer, then the celebration was on.

JT Garcia helped power his Midwest regional team to a win on Friday with a home run, and proved he already has flair for dramatic timing down perfectly. Garcia didn't just launch a home run to center field, he did it while his mother Jen was being interviewed by ESPN.

Jen was being interviewed about her battle with pancreatic cancer when her son JT put a charge into one. It took her a second to realize what was happening, but then the celebration was on.

"That was amazing," Jen told ESPN's Jaymee Sire. "That was absolutely amazing."

Yes it was. What a moment.
